This weekend my brother-in-law Tim and his wife, Aimee, will again ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge to help raise funds to find a cure for DIPG. So far over $60,000 has been raised that will go to the Evan T. Mandeville DIPG Fund at Dana Farber. Such an important race; for our family to honor and remember Evan; to raise money to find a cure for this devastating, terminal, only treatable by clinical trials disease that takes TOO MANY kids every year. Click on the links for Evan’s Crew, it is never too late to donate.
Go Team Evan’s Crew! We’ll be rockin’ our Evan’s Crew t-shirts all weekend~!
Today Sweets and I are rockin’ our Evan’s Crew t-shirts in support of Team Evan’s Crew as they prepare to go to battle. Their battle begins by finishing the 163 mile bike ride for the Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and specifically to a fund supporting DIPG research.
DIPG, otherwise known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, the monster that is a rare pediatric brain cancer that stole Evan, an “awesome dude”, a son, a brother, a grandchild, a nephew, a friend….
DIPG is the monster that the team of 9 will ride against.
DIPG is the monster that needs to be brought down, and the only way to do that is finding a cure. Because right now, only 10% diagnosed with DIPG survive longer than 18 months.
Evan died one year to the day of his diagnosis.
